Simple home Indian style chicken masala which goes well with roti , naan, paratha or rice. This is made in various ways in every household across India. Regionwise taste differs slightly but the basic ingredients remain the same.
This is the chicken masala — which I have mentioned in my previous post with Garlic Naan, my friends those who follow me — will surely understand—- 🙂
- 750 gm of chicken (with bone , medium pieces)
- Onion , ginger , garlic paste 1 medium bowl
- Dahi or curd 1/2 cup
- Red chilli powder 4 to 5 tbsp
- 2 tsp of green chilli paste
- Ghee or clarified butter for cooking
- 1 tsp of garam masala
- Salt to taste
Marinate the chicken pieces with all the spices overnight (except the ghee).
Heat a deep bottomed pan and add ghee , when it is hot , add the marinated chicken pieces along with all the marination . Cover it and cook till the chicken gets cooked in it’s own juices , no need to add water — Turn off the flame when oil oozes out and sprinkle some garam masala and coriander leaves for garnishing —
That’s it — so simple — go ahead and give it a try —
